Recruitment Manager – Scientific Division

Permanent opportunity for a Recruitment Manager within our Scientific division. This role will be based in the Wirral but with hybrid working between the office and home.

Scantec are a leading engineering, technical and scientific specialist recruitment agency providing a range of expert recruitment services to our clients throughout the UK and overseas. Our consultative approach focuses on initiating and sustaining longstanding trusted partnerships with our clients whilst delivering a high quality, professional service.

Established for over 30 years, we are a trusted recruitment brand built on a reputation of enhancing businesses, progressing careers and striving for success, and we are equally as passionate about the development and achievement of our own people.

Job Details
Scantec currently have a unique opportunity for a Recruitment Manager with experience in the Scientific sector to join our Scientific division working alongside and supporting our existing team of experts. Our Scientific team is well established and with huge scope to continue growing.  As such we’re looking for an ambitious individual to join the team and play a lead role in driving the business forward.

This is a real opportunity to work within a fascinating and buoyant market with plenty of warm relationships as well as the chance to develop the business further.  You will be recruiting predominantly across the Pharmaceutical, Biologics, Medical Device and Chemical industries and a range of specialist disciplines within this.  The scientific sector is always evolving so adaptability is key.  While you will benefit from some strong client relationships, you will also be expected to develop your business by building long lasting client and candidate relationships and taking a commercial approach while leading from the front.  With the right person at the helm, this business has real potential.

The Successful Applicant
To be successful in this role, you will need prior recruitment management experience, ideally within the scientific sector or similar.  It is a highly technical and specialist sector so you will need to work consultatively and commercially, advising your clients and fully understanding your market.  Alongside this, it is essential that you are credible with a solutions-orientated approach and a real desire to succeed. You will be a self-starter with a positive attitude and the ability to lead by example.

** This role will require some UK travel so a driving licence will be required.**

What we offer

At Scantec we value our employees and we believe we offer a market-leading benefits package. We offer remote working giving our team a combination of working from the office and from home in order to facilitate a better work/life balance and all employees are provided with a company laptop.  Alongside a competitive basic salary which is regularly reviewed, we offer a lucrative commission structure, monthly and annual incentives, a clear and transparent progression structure through our competency framework and enhanced professional training with the opportunity to gain a recognised recruitment qualification.  We also recognise that the well-being of our employees is important so in addition to 23 days annual leave you have the opportunity to buy additional days holiday as well as accrue further days through an attendance incentive scheme.

We believe that rewarding success and supporting personal development is vital for our future growth and therefore we provide a variety of opportunities to support you in achieving your career goals.
